Another M&T Release
Posted by Csabo on 2005-11-29
C16 Chris sent us the works for C16/C116/Plus4 Text-Manager. This is another M&T utility (like C16/C116/Plus4 Micro-BASIC-Compiler from a while back), and as the name suggests it's a word processor. Looks like a fairly competent one at that. We have the high-quality full size cover scans and the 16 page software manual as well. Check it out and enjoy! Thanks to C16 Chris once again.


Book Covers and an Invitation
Posted by Csabo on 2005-11-27
Ron van Schaik was kind enough to send us a nice set of book covers that we were missing from our site. Among others, we now have The Commodore C16/Plus4 Companion, The Commodore Plus 4 Book, Het grote floppy-boek, Werken met de Commodore Disk Drive and Commodore C16 Book 1: Starting Basic. Visit our Publications section: it's the most comprehensive one on the internet for C16 & Plus/4 related books and magazines. We've also made some navigational improvements, e.g. books that were translated to other languages will now have a link to the translations (example: the The Commodore 16 Games Book now links to its Italian counterpart.) This section (as the rest of the site) also still needs volunteer work, so if you want to help out, here's your chance. Got more books, magazines, or cover scans for existing listing? Send them in!

Ron would also like to invite ANY commodore user to their Commodore Show on December 17th. He said there are already 3 C16/Plus4 owners that will be attending. If you can, then come, you are officially invited! Click the link below and scroll down for English.


Two Video Cover Replacements
Posted by Csabo on 2005-11-26
From the never ending C16 Chris collection we've uploaded two more cover scans. They are classic Mastertronic Commodore 16 games: Video Meanies and Video Poker. Enjoy!


Mike Dailly Launches New Version of Minus4j!
Posted by MIK on 2005-11-23
Minus4j (1.3) is out! Minus4j (1.3) is out! Should I say that again? Yes, it's true and it's only just gone live now for your downloading pleasure!
MikeD says there's a readme explaining the new parameters etc. for this new version, so I won't go into detail with those for now, but thought I'd share a quick snip of what Mike had to say,

"I got fed up of seeing Minus4j pages where the FPS was way too high, even when using a sleep of 30! So I've changed it so that it's now tied to a frame rate, which means things run at the right speed. I've also added a scaling screen, so you can double or treble (if you like) the screen area on your web pages (720x480 is *2) which makes things easier to see."

Remember folks before you go rushing off this is a web browser based Java Plus4 emulator, but saying that it's free for all and if you fancy having a play or creating your own archive of C16/Plus4 wonders for anyone to enjoy while on the web then Minus4J is a great tool indeed!
Cheers Mike and best wishes buddy!



New Compilation Cover Scan
Posted by Csabo on 2005-11-22
C16 Chris sent us a full size cover for Super Hits From Microdeal. This 6 game compilation tape includes all three Cuthbert games (Cuthbert in the Cooler, Cuthbert in Space, Cuthbert Enters the Tombs of Doom), two adventures (Castle Dracula (Adventure 5), Ultimate (Adventure 4)) and Arena 3000. We also have the 6 page accompanying booklet online. It's worth a look, the writeup of Cuthbert Enters the Tombs of Doom is especially notable. It's possibly the same as the game's cover scan, but that's still missing (hint, hint, collectors!). Thanks to C16 Chris once again!


German Basic-Compiler
Posted by Csabo on 2005-11-21
C16 Chris sent us a complete package for C16/C116/Plus4 Micro-Basic-Compiler. We have a D64 image, full size disk cover scans and a 16 page user's guide for it (in German). This utility is for programmers, check it out if that kind of thing tickles your fancy. Thanks to C16 Chris for this!


New Software, Cover Scans and an Ad
Posted by Csabo on 2005-11-19
Check out the new stuff send in by Ulysses777! Company Pac 123 is a complete business accounting system. Does that sound funny? It probably wasn't in 1984. Nevertheless it's part of the collection now, complete with cover scans and a disk image. Next we have Micro Base from Kingsoft/Anco, it's yet another database system. Finally we have a cool advertisement for the Commodore Plus/4. "...And all of that is yours for just £299.99!" Well, we do know that the Plus/4 IS worth it, but the ad is a must see :-) Excellent stuff, big thanks to Ulysses777 once again! Enjoy!


Exomizer 2.0 Beta 3 Released!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-11-14
Magnus Lind, the author of the best cross-platform cruncher Exomizer has sent us word that there's a new public beta released. The last stable version was 1.x series, and this is a big step up from that. Selected items from the new features list:
  • Totally rewitten handling of the sfx decruncher.
  • Several different decrunch effects.
  • Complete user control over memory and irq config.
  • Can start basic programs properly with built in trampoline by using the command 'sfx basic'
  • The decruncher code is assembled on the fly for maximum flexibility by an embedded assembler.
  • Will adapt the decruncher to include only features used by the compressed stream to keep the size down.
  • Can generate relocated sfx targets without basic line.
  • Has a literal sequence escape mechanism that detects and handles sequences of uncrunchable data properly.
Those of you who actually get the above list a correct to go "impressive" (hint: most of this translates into even better compression than before). It is a crime to compress anything on a Plus/4 but this. Grab the beta now and use it! The author welcomes any feedback. Enjoy!


New Cover!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-11-14
Just one... But it's rare, and as unbelievable as it sounds it's new. Looks like Sidius found a copy of Super Gran The Adventure... Will there be a program file coming soon? We'll see. Thanks Sidius!


New version of MNIB available
Posted by Gaia on 2005-11-08
Peter Rittwage has taken over development of the excellent MNIB tool (originally from Markus Brenner) with which one can dump and archive original copy protected disks with a parallelized Commodore 1541 drive. The new release is able to copy virtually any protected disk. So fire up your parallel 1541 everyone and begin dumping those Kingsoft disks :-)

Tynesoft C16 Plus/4 Club!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-11-05
C16 Chris sent us a new publication: Tynesoft C16 Plus4 Club! This booklet didn't fit into any of the 4 existing publication categories, so it is now the first one in a new category: Promotional Materials. Looking through the 18 pages is fun, it's nice to see our collection... But wait a minute! What's that on Page 12? Super Gran The Adventure? That's right folks. Well, this missing (and therefore most wanted) piece of software is also mentioned on the back cover of Super Gran. Maybe no-one ever bought a copy? Anyway, thanks to C16 Chris for this. Enjoy!


Ultimate Plus4 Map V1.3!
Posted by Csabo on 2005-11-03
Ultimate Plus4 MapPlus/4 utility guru SVS is proud to announce the release of the Ultimate Plus4 Map V1.3. The most notable new feature is "RAM Map", which has valuable information consolidated from many resources, including the official Plus/4 Programmers Guide. There's also lots of new documentation about the I/O and banking, plus tons of other minor improvements. This handy XLS file (which is now also available as HTML) is a must have for anyone who is still hacking the C16 or Plus/4. Download it now! Cheers to SVS for maintaining this!
